Evolution and radiation in the scorpion Buthus elmoutaouakili Lourenco and Qi 2006 (Scorpiones: Buthidae) at the foothills of the Atlas Mountains (North Africa).
When low dispersal ability of an organism meets geographical barriers, the evolution of inter- and intraspecific differentiation is often facilitated. In the Atlas massif of North Africa, the genusExpand
